    Great app! Living in Japan, I can't tell how many times it saved me, or so to say. And if you can couple it with the Kanji Recognizer from the same developer, you will even be able to look up entries by tracing kanji directly in the app!

    If I search a sentence example of a verb, please also include sentences with the other forms of the verb.

    Very good app! I'm using the 'kanji of the day' widget mostly. I would give it 5 stars if the TTS worked to check pronunciation.
